Bidding process[edit]

Denmark and France were bidding to host the 2017 Men's World Championships. The IHF Council awarded the Men’s and Women’s World Championships 2017 at their meeting on the fringes of the Women’s World Championships in São Paulo, Brazil on Thursday 15 December 2011.[7]

Denmark was the co-host of the 1999 Women’s World Championship and host of the 1978 Men's World Championship. Denmark has also hosted the Women's EHF EURO twice and was awarded with the Men's EHF EURO 2014.

France hosted the Men's World Championships in 1970 and 2001 and was host of the 2007 Women's World Championship.

Qualification[edit]

Twenty-four teams participated in the final tournament. France, as hosts, were automatically qualified. Since an additional automatic qualification spot was given to defending champion holder which is the same team - France, this berth was given to the next best placed team from the last World Championship - losing finalist Qatar. That left 22 places available for the best teams of each continental qualification tournament, the winners of an additional European qualification competition and an additional intercontinental qualification tournament.[8]
